    Daniel, I think you may have stepped over to the dark side, making puukko knives. That really looks nice so far. I'm eager to see it finished.

    Daniel,

    I'm curious. Why is your hole in the brass in the shape of the blade and not just in the shape of the tang so the blade will just butt up against the brass. Looks good and I love the challenge and artistic requirements of a Puukko. I love the wood and the leather and a Puukko give me a balance between working steel and working those so enjoy yourself on the "Dark Side".

    This blade style doesn't actually have any plunges or flat "ricassso" area to make a nice place for the guard so I have to make the hole in that shape to get a nice clean fit all the way around the blade...I'll get another shot of it latter and it should make sense...

    Thanks Jim! There fun knives to make but fitting a guard like this is....scary. I'm going for a birch bark handle on it...



    OTHER than the puukko...and chef and a chopper and some others...haha way to busy...two of my latest Carter Pattern Neckers...Just thought I'd share:


    This one is a pretty simple user with Brown canvas Micarta w/ White and Forest Green Liners and deferentially heat treated 1095 7 1/2" overall









    ....AND this one is Jade G10 with Micarta liners and same as the above one...













    Eh. Nothin to earth shatterin or shnazzy but thought Id share...just cause


    Hope you like em'

    Really want to go to the Little Rock knife show this weekend, but I figured that the money I would spend would be better used in the shop. Started putting up a French cleat wall system tonight. This room will be my primary knife making area with about 25 feet of wall like this. I really intend to be better organized in the future. I'm going to paint the cleats wall color so they'll blend in better and keep the room bright. Got a zillion screw holes to putty up tomorrow!

    Hey Anthony...your shop is starting to look real fancy...with the way you use 2x4s I'm sure it is costing less than it looks. Good job!

    I'm still working on my remodel....man I never would have thought it would take so long....sigh.
    Thanks,

    Made some templates of some new designs I've been working on. Still need to do some tweaking but I'm excited to start on them.

    Thanks Ted. I figured you can't be to organized, so Sunday I put up 20 more feet of cleats. I'm at the shop putting on a coat of primer right now.

    Very nice designs. Question: on your shorter chef knife (2nd from left) that's a lot of belly. Any reason why the shorter knife has a german belly versus the larger, more french aspect, chef knife? Just curious.

    Anthony...totally agree. I am a messy worker. When on a project I don't even see the havoc I am creating. Having places to neatly store things helps greatly....

    The other thing is...Now is the time to put up those cleats. Even if you do not use them all they give you choices as to WHERE you want to place things. They are visually very clean looking and add a nice linear feel to the walls...rock on!

    Good catch. That happens when you think you can clean the profile of your template up by running it length wise on a 36 grit slack belt. The original drawing, admittedly, has more belly than the larger knife, but not that much.
    I sometimes struggle with drawing a design with less belly. Seems like no matter how hard I try my brain just wants that belly in the blade lol.
